Statistics of carriers in semiconductors

  1. May 30, 2014 #1
    there are two type of charge carrier in semiconductor , one is electron which carry negative charge and other is hole which carry negative charge , electron meet with hole and they recombine ,

    Q1 what is carrier transport

    Q2 what is carrier statistics in semiconductor

    A hole carries positive charge, not negative.

    The motion of the two charge carriers.

    Fermi and Dirac are two people from history.
    Fermi-level is an energy that is named after one of them.
    Fermi-Dirac statistics are a kind of statistics that you can look up online and in your course notes which is named after the people.
    Short answer: different.
